According to Dell’Oro Group, the wireless local area netork market revenue will reach $18.2 billion by 2022. Broadband premises equipment and mesh routers will fuel growth for SOHO class WLAN. “We estimate the enterprise and SOHO markets to maintain modest growth over the next five years,” said Ritesh Patel, business analyst at Dell’Oro Group. “Specifically in the SOHO market, the need for bet- ter Wi-Fi coverage and in-home management will be driven by the demand for improved net- work visibility and application mobility, i.e. having the ability from anywhere in the home to experience high bandwidth ap- plications such as FaceTime, Netflix and YouTube.” Broadband CPE and Wi-Fi router vendors will fulfill this need by integrating new wire- less technology, 802.11ax, and by improving visibility into analytics and management con- trols, added Patel. “Similarly, vendors will address the need for better coverage through mesh routers, which will contin- ue to see modest to high growth over the next five years.” According to the report, en- terprise cloud license revenue will surpass cloud managed AP revenue for the first time. Eth- ernet switch sales to aggregate WLANs are poised to eclipse switch sales lost to WLAN.
